Happy Friday! I think this week went by pretty fast, it helped with the “holiday” yesterday! But, I am super excited that it’s the weekend. Laura is coming to visit! Planning to make an ice cream cake and do lots of Body Pump together <—those two things go together, right?
Check out this cute Valentine that Luke “made” for us at daycare. Love!
And because it is Friday, here are a few more things that have made me smile lately!
My 31 bag
My friend, Jodi, had a 31 party before Christmas. I went because I wanted to check it out, but mainly because Jodi knows how to throw a good party complete with awesome food (And Sarah and Nicole were going to be there too!). 😉 But oh my goodness – they have so many awesome bags. I ended up spending over $100! By far my most favorite bag is this one – the large utility tote. It is the best bag ever! It is as large as a laundry basket and has handles that are long enough to go over your shoulder.
I love different colored pens – they just make writing things in my planner so much more exciting! It’s the little things, right? 😉
This is such a great appliance. I am super excited to be participating in the crockpot challenge, so I actually use it more. I think I forget about it way too much!
I just started doing this recently, but it has made such a huge difference. No more stress on the way home from work trying to figure out what is for dinner, less eating out because we have a plan, and more leftovers because I am making dinner more frequently. I actually did a meal plan for all of January because we were trying to eat out less and I knew if we had a plan and meals that we were looking forward to at home, we would be a lot more successful! Of course, we had some changes along the way. . but overall it went really well. I did it again for February and so far so good! Nachos for dinner tonight and honey sesame chicken (in the crockpot!) tomorrow night.
And these 2 smiling faces!
What are some things that have made you smile recently? Any plans for the weekend?
